The Midsummer Night's Desktop

Linux: This beautiful Arch Linux desktop takes us down to the beach. Our friend dobbie03 submitted it, and here’s how he made it.


The Navigator's Desktop

Windows: Reader salt_and_pepper submitted this beautiful, functional desktop to our desktop showcase. A few widgets on the side and room to work on the left, and it’s all done. Here’s how it was made.


The Eclipse Desktop

Windows: Reader Pushkar put together this stark but open and clean desktop in just a few minutes with a couple of easily-configured components. Here’s how he did it.


The Sidebar Equaliser Desktop

Windows: This animated desktop from reader Caln is a great combination of work and play — room to work on the left and tools to help, and a fun, animated equaliser on the right side that matches his music. Here’s how he set it up.


The Fire Suppression Desktop

Windows: Our friend joergermeister has made more than a few of our favourite desktops, and this is another great contribution. Clean, sparse and still functional, here’s how he set it all up.


The Jagged Desktop

Sharp points and angles are the theme of Mahmoud’s desktop. While it’s certainly dramatic, we also love the way he’s customised it to fit his style and his workflow. Here’s how he set everything up.


The Flat N' Fuzzy Desktop

Reader Royale with Cheese loves flat desktops, and so do we. This time around his desktop pays homage to the legendary fuzz pedal, the Big Muff. It’s a simple, flat look that says a lot if you know what to look for. Here’s how it’s all set up.


The Global Monitor Desktop

Windows: Jerome doesn’t have admin rights to his work laptop (which makes sense), but he didn’t want that to stop him from adding a little personality to it. The result is this good-looking, informative, and custom Windows desktop. Here’s how he set it all up.


The Firewatch Desktop

Over on Flickr, Ahmad is pumped for Firewatch, an upcoming game that promises to be amazing. His desktop gives us sunset from a beautifully high vantage point — but it also helps him launch apps and check his system status. Here’s how he set it up.


The San Miguel Desktop

Mac: Reader Kiss Kiss Bang! Bang! wanted to put together a desktop that shows his hometown in all its glory, and we think he’s done just that — it’s stunning. Here’s how he set it up, and how you can put a piece of San Miguel on your desktop too.
